Treasury statistics concerning
the tnvle with China show plain

note of Secretary Hay to the
world powers on the breaking J cies of modern business and so-

' The first night and day bank
of New York City, now being
organized, will be open twenty
four hours in the day, working
three shifts of employees It is
being founded on the assump
tion that banking hours are
now all too brief for the exigen-
ed from St. Louis to the Port
land exposition grounds, he lie!
including some of the; finest
pieces that were shown at the
world's fair. Other St. Louis
features are to be translated, in

those who found it' impossible
to visit the Missouri show' will

!tue conflict should bo refined to
the territory in which it was
begun, and that t!ie neutrality
of China should be rigidly ob
served and respected, he saved
a constantly growing trade from
interruption, as well as securing
the confiuement of the horrors
of war to the smallest possible
extent of territory.
Two instances of the growing
importance of the Cnina trade
to the United States will, pract
ically, show all instances. The
exports of cotton cloth from the
United States to China iu Oct.
1904, were 43,343,533 yards, as
against only 9,070,600 yards in
October, 1903. But the increase
in exports, of miueral oils was
even greater. For the ten months
ending October 31, 1904, the
value of the mineral oil exports
was $6,478,788, as agaiust ouly
$1,834,958 for the corresponding
ten mouths of 1903.
The total exports to China
from the Unitad States footed
ui $4,406,864 for the fianol va
